"A welcome revival of the Ideal Band, Campbell's distinctive vocals and original songs with a smattering of trad.arr, distinctive flavours of cello and rich undertone of Paterson's piano. Warmly welcomed by all who waited so long for a follow up." ~ R2 [formerly Rock and Reel magazine]
"The songs are absolutely gorgeous... I can't praise this CD highly enough, and if you get a chance to see them live, make time to enjoy an evening of great songs and music... this CD will fill the gap in your rack marked if I only buy one CD again place here." ~ CD review Amazon.co.uk September 2009
